Gangs of London still has one episode left to air on Sky Atlantic, but with the entire nine-part series having been available to bingewatch as a boxset since April, many fans have already marathoned the entire thing and are hungry for more.
The early signs are good for a renewal, with Sky revealing that last month that Gangs of London is the channel’s most watched original show this year and its second-biggest original drama ever.
But there’s no official word yet on a season two, with the show’s co-creator, writer/director Gareth Evans, telling RadioTimes.com that the ongoing global situation, particularly the coronavirus pandemic, mean it’s difficult to confirm anything at this point.
“It’s one of those things where we’ve still be in the throes of enjoying the response to it, and enjoying the reaction to the first one,” Evans explained, as part of an exclusive Gangs of London Q&A event on the Radio Times Facebook page.

“It took us three years to get this one designed and done and out – and also we’re in weird unprecedented times at the moment, both on a global scale and on many other levels.”
Evans added: “It’s something that we’re very heartened by, to hear that there’s a hunger for it, that there’s a desire for it, and who knows? Just watch this space, really.”
Fingers crossed that a second season does materialise sooner rather than later. We’ll avoid spoilers in case you’re watching at Sky Atlantic pace, but trust those of us who’ve watched the finale – once you’re caught up, you’ll be screaming for more episodes too…
Gangs of London stars Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders) as Sean Wallace, heir to a vast criminal episode, and Sope Dirisu (Humans) as Elliot Finch, an enforcer with divided loyalties who becomes caught up in Sean’s world.
